This is a comment, not a question.
I’ve been using Tinderbox for many years. To newcomers, keep at it. The program is useful even if employed at the most basic level. The more time you put in, the more powerful it gets. I’ve been at it for years and still feel like a beginner. But the community is enthusiastic and very helpful, willing and able to bring newcomers along the learning curve. There were times early on I considered giving up on Tinderbox, but for some reason I kept at it. I’m glad I didn.
